Barn conversion and studio flat
Address: Elm Grove Barn, Dennes Lane, Lydd Price: £590,000 Agent: Hobbs Parker This barn conversion is close to Lydd’s imposing church and has great space for flexible family living.
As well as the four first floor bedrooms, there is a ground floor bedroom and a studio flat above the detached garage.
Buyers will find a stylish barn conversion with oak floors, a custom-built oak and glass staircase, under floor heating and double glazing.
The layout is spacious, with three ground floor reception rooms. A large kitchen/diner has integrated appliances and patio doors opening out to the terrace.
A ground floor bedroom with en suite shower room is used as an office/studio and on the first floor the four other bedrooms.
The studio flat comes with its own kitchen and bathroom.
All the gardens have been landscaped and there is a sundeck and slate terrace at the back of the house. Lydd was once a lucrative fishing harbour, until the River Rother changed its course in the Great Storm of 1287, leaving the town inland.
The house is close to All Saints’ Church, which, reflecting the former importance of the town, is one of the largest churches in Kent and is known as the Cathedral of the Marsh. Many shipwrecked sailors are buried there and herons nest in the churchyard. New Romney is four miles away and Ashford International Station is 15 miles away.
